Louis Erard x Konstantin Chaykin Le Régulateur Purple Watch
The meeting between Louis Erard and Konstantin Chaykin gave birth to a strange creature. A one-eyed monster to which the mechanics give life. Time looks at the wearer with a large singular hour eye. This cyclopean gaze takes up the original elements of Konstantin Chaykin's signature first Joker watch - whose eyes were made up of white discs marked with a dot, both pupil and indicator. Chaykin took inspiration from Likho, a one-eyed creature from Slavic tales, for the timepiece.
The watchmaker dressed the small second indicator at six o'clock with pointed teeth, turning like an open mouth. To complete the cartoonish character, he created a playful minute indicator with the appearance of an arrow: a point at one end, a plumage at the other; a finger stretched out on one side, a sign of the horns at the other end.
Konstantin Chaykin explains: "I remembered Francisco Goya and his Saturn devouring one of his sons. I thought of a Stephen King short story, The Langoliers, time eaters. The eye itself, the outer contour of the dial, the colors used in its design, all of this is an homage to the first model of my collection.“
However, the watchmaker adds: "It is up to each person to interpret the meaning."
